THE THREE CROSSES
The iron cross is black as death and
hard as human hate;
T h e wooden cress is white and still
and whispers us, “Too Late,”
But the Red Cross sings of life and
love and hearts regenerate.
The iron cross is a boastful cross and
marks the war-mad slave;
T h e wooden cross is a dumb, dead
cross and marks a shallow grave,
But the Red Cross reaches out its
arms to solace and to save.
The iron cross is a kaiser’s cross and
narrow is its clan;
ThG wooden cross is a soldier’s cross
and mourns its partisan,
B u t the Red Cross is the Cross of One
who served his fellowman.
— Edmond Vance Cooke.

The lecture given in the High
night by Gordon J. Taylor, prov
ed a grand success. We are cer
tain it was enjoyed by all who
heard it. The High School made
over $17.00 by the affair.
STOP! LOOK! LISTEN!
Last Saturday our gridiron
stars walloped Benson Tech. 21-6
the game was one of many thrills.
Benson got a touchdown in the
first quarter but Estacada came
back in the second half, and
showed a style of fast play that
completely baffled her opponents.
The same proved that our men
have the “stuff” if they only use
it. There was a talk of a game
Friday, to be played at Van
couver, but Vancouver ccanelled
it, leaving our manager the job
of getting one before Friday.
Humors are spreading about
the Juniors starting their class
play. Watch for further an
The Sophomores who for th .
past week have been contesting
against the Freshmen to see who
could sell the largest number of
tickets for the Taylor lecture,
ended with the Sophs on top,
having sold nearly tw ice as many
tickets as their opponents. The
losers will entertain the winners
in the near future.
The Freshman class is again
the proud owner of a new mem
ber (and man he is,) whose
name happens to be Luke Ray
mond. He is going out for foot
ball and is being worked on the
scrub line. It is hoped he will
prove a good player as he has
the necessary weight.
Miss Morrison started hot
lunches going at the High School
this week and is surely making a
grand success of it. Few think
now of going home for lunch.

“ The people of the state are
responding with the enthusiasm
and optimism so characteristic
of Oregon people to the call of the
Oregon Tuberculosis Association
for assistance in its annual Red
Cross Christmas seal sale to be
held December 1, to 10, inclu
sive,” said Floyd E. Dorris,
field secretary of the Association,
who is in charge of the campaign

“Oregon has $44,260 to raise
through the sale of the little
Christmas stickers it is a big
sum and will require the assist
ance of every man, woman and
child in the state, but 1 believe
we will have it. ”

Two well known young people
put it over their relatives anfi
friends by getting married last
August 23rd at Hillsboro, and
keeping the fact quiet until re
cently. They are R. L. Starr and
Violet Sarver. The bride has been
going to school since the term
opened which helped to camou
flage the situation. It would now
be in order for the Domestic Sci
ence department to make a bride
cake and serve a belated wed
ding feast. The News extends
congratulations and best wishes.
